From August 15-17, 2014
Crafts are a part of the folk tradition and the Philadelphia Folk Festival is pleased to continue our expanded crafts area at the top of the concert hill. Walk through and admire the craftsmanship; watch the glassblowers, metalsmith, artists, and candlemakers at work; take home a one-of-a-kind item to help you remember the Festival during the winter. Parents please note: This is not day care. Please share this experience with your children. The Philadelphia Folk Festival Craft Show is a juried event.
Interested in applying for a place in the 2014 craft show?
The Philadelphia Folk Festival Craft Show is now accepting applications for the 2014 Festival. We seek a balanced mix of crafts and categories in the jurying process, and accept a limited number of vendors as well. If you are interested in consideration, please email the committee at phillyfolkcrafts [at] gmail.com. The annually juried exhibition features about 60 exhibitor booths. The 2014 fee for a 10' x 10' space is $550 for the three day festival. This includes electricity and meals.
Who may apply:
The Philadelphia Folksong Society Festival Craft Show is committed to featuring handmade goods created by the artists and artisans who show them at our event. Items not made by the applicant or the applicant's studio are ineligible. The Craft Jury may occasionally decide, in addition, to feature other examples of indigenous crafts which represent the folk culture of an area. Again, this year, we have chosen to add an area featuring a small number of non-craft vendors, who also may apply here.
When to Apply:
We are currently accepting applications for the 2014 Folk Festival. The submission deadline is 12:55PM, January 31, 2014. There may be some spots in specific categories that are available after the jurying process. If you are interested in consideration, please email the committee at phillyfolkcrafts [at] gmail.com.
Selected applicants will be notified by the beginning of March, 2014. We will also create a waiting list at that time.
